The draft is now just a couple of days away. And could it be Paris Johnson Jr whose name gets called when the Eagles are on the board at pick 10?
Even when it is not a need, O-Line is never off the board for Howie Roseman. Two years in a row Howie spent his 2nd round pick on what he thought would be their future center if Jason Kelce retired. First, it was Landon Dickerson. He ended up playing his rookie year when Isaac Seumalo got hurt. But the plan was for him to ride the bench all season long. Last season it was Cam Jurgens. And he did sit for pretty much his whole rookie season. Apart from some snaps filling in for Kelce here and there.
So even though the Eagles have both Tackles spots wrapped up for at least two years, their LG in Dickerson, and Jason Kelce returned, O-Line could very much be on the table at pick 10. Whether it is getting the eventual replacement for Lane Johnson, or someone to play RG this season and sit Cam Jurgens again.
We took a look at Northwestern’s Peter Skoronski earlier in the draft process. But now let’s get to know another of the top OL prospects a little bit better. Ohio State’s Paris Johnson Jr. Will Johnson even be there at pick 10? Would he be the right fit at RG for the near future? And does what Paris Johnson brings to the team off the field make him even more valuable?
